Cornelia Studer

I was born in Zurich in 1974 and began my professional life as a Typographer.  After completing training in various areas, at age 25, I began working independently and worked until 2013 in my own studio.

Because I suffered severe back pain, I began to practice Yoga when I was about 18. Sadly, Yoga did not help, in fact things worsened! 

I first met Aleš Urbanczik in 1999. He guided me through my first 10 sessions of Structural Integration!  I can remember his word so well: “Yes... We absolutely must work on your feet...”  I thought this can’t possibly be true.  After all, I have back pain.  

I learned so incredibly much in this process. In addition to the classic 10 sessions, we improved my Yoga asanas. I learned a completely new way of thinking and a self-determined way to take care of my body.

I was so taken with the fact that I could work upon my own body by myself that I began to practice RolfYoga intensively. After a few years, I began to teach Yoga. In 2014, I travelled to the United States with my family to be formally trained in Structural Integration. I attended the Guild for Structural Integration, working under Amber Leigh Burnham in Salt Lake City UT, and then under Emmet Hutchins in Kauai HI.  I attended several workshops led by Neal Powers, Sharon Wheeler, David Davis and Mary Bond. In 2018 I successfully completed my advanced training in Prague taught by Neal Powers and Aleš Urbanczik. In December 2014, I began my practice in Wilchingen, where I also teach RolfYoga and where I reside with my husband Cosmas and my children Nalu and Miro.
